They have won 121 women’s singles events, four mixed doubles titles, and more than 300 weeks at number one in the rankings, as well as eight weeks in the women’s doubles rankings, in more than two decades.

Venus and Serena were ranked first and second in the singles rankings after the 2002 French Open. Both are members of a select club of tennis players who have won 50 or more titles. The Williams sisters won 14 Grand Slam titles as a team in women’s doubles competitions, including four in a row (from Wimbledon 2009 to Paris 2010), although not in the same year.

Even at the Olympics, their accomplishments are impressive: they have won a total of four gold medals, three in women’s doubles and one apiece in singles. They also sparked a fierce competition amongst them.

Serena’s greatest adversary was undoubtedly Venus, although she has been challenged by others as well. Serena has lost quite a few times against Martina Hingis, Jennifer Capriati, and Justine Henin.
